These beautiful borders are printed along one edge of the overall design limiting both the amount of border available to work with as well as decreasing the width of the main pattern.
“We were able to take a fabulous fabric and a wonderful chair and marry the two to create a stunning piece that can be enjoyed for many years.”
We wanted to highlight the use of the border in the overall design without compromising the amount of fabric needed for the body of the chair. Through the use of self-welt, I was able to construct the body with more narrow cuts maximizing the yardage of the main pattern.
A hidden zipper was placed along one of the corded seams to allow for easy removal. The border was given a place of honor both in the boxing of the seat cushion and the knife pleated ruffle. The ruffle was pleated to pattern to highlight the botanical design.
